Covid-Reopening-Announcement

Following further announcements from the Acting Premier of Victoria around the scaling back of COVID restrictions in Regional Victoria, the Wangaratta Sports & Aquatic Centre reopened on Saturday 12 June 2021 at 8am with some changes.

As of Friday 18 June, due to restricted density requirements for indoor recreational facilities, we are permitted to a maximum capacity of 300 persons total for the entire facility, however all facilities within the Wangaratta Sports and Aquatic Centre are now open.

Our team has been working hard behind the scenes through the changes and how they will affect our members, and the updated details are listed below.

We thank you for your patience while we work through these changes and are looking forward to welcoming you back to WSAC safely!
